This thread is for people to for information about the three hotels offering special deals to conference delegates, and about the London Host scheme which helps put London-based translators in touch with colleagues from elsewhere who like to be hosted, offering additional social and networking opportunities to both.

I will reply to all questions as soon as my hectic work schedule allows, but there's no need for this to be just a Question and Answer forum. Feedback, suggestions and discussion are welcomed as well.

Best regards

Michael

Hi everyone,

I'm staying at the Premier Inn, too. I will arrive Friday 21 in the afternoon. What about meeting in the evening?

The joys of early registration Oct 30, 2008

Don't forget that you will be able to register on the Friday evening at the Camden Centre if you want to and can also meet colleagues there for a drink.

This has several advantages.

It will mean you know exactly how long it will take you to get the venue on the Saturday morning, making life less rushed and stressful.

You will be able to avoid the Saturday registration queues and "concentrate" on just relaxing over breakfast and socialising/networking.

And of course there's also the networking event on the Friday evening, which is very near all the hotels and will mean that you will get off to a great start with meeting people and networking before the conference even starts. There are still places available.

The only negative effect of early registration and the Friday Networking Event is that you will need to bring more business cards with you!

Cheers

Michael

Arriving in the evening Oct 30, 2008

Hi Stefano (and anyone else staying at The Premier Inn),

I will be arriving at around 8 pm and my idea is to meet for a drink and a bite at the hotel and possibly even take a walk to the Camden Centre to register.

Perhaps we could meet at the Hotel Reception?

Camden Centre unlikely to be open for early registration after 8 pm Oct 30, 2008

Hi Trini,

just thought I'd point out that the Camden Centre is unlikely to be open for early registration after 8.00 p.m. on Friday...

I wouldn't want you (or anyone else) to go there for nothing!

Cheers

Michael
